The Painkiller Cocktail

I am kind of a sucker for cocktails that come with a warning. So, Ahem.

Warning: THIS ONE IS CRAZY (in a good way). But-- Beware. It's a drink that goes down a little tooooooo smoothly. It's sweet, TROPICAL and totally refreshing but all of a sudden, it sneaks up on you!

The first time I had one was at a fabulous Tiki Bar called Forbidden Island in Alameda. We ended the night with a gigantic shared drink that was lit on fire...surrounded by 4 straws... The painkiller was just a drop in the bucket that night. That night ended in Taco Bell...7 layer burritos and nachos bell grande, OMG.

The second time I had a painkiller, I was hanging out with the same friends in Carmel and we made a batch to reminisce over that crazy tiki bar night. What I remember  from our Carmel night is that three of the four of us were laying on the floor after drinking them feeling numb and saying, "OMG!!! IT REALLY IS LIKE A PAINKILLER!"  There's just something wild about the combination of rum, pineapple juice, orange juice,  coconut cream and nutmeg. Painkiller is the perfect way to describe it. Who needs a chiropractor when you can have a cocktail?

And we're off!

I realized that my blog is very tropical this week with this drink & my Tangerine Sherbet!

The reason? I was just looking at one of my weeks from last year....in MEXICO. Sigh. Mama needs a tropical vacation!

Everything except the nutmeg goes into a cocktail shaker!

Mix it up!!! The color is almost like milky iced coffee.

Top with extra ice. Grate fresh nutmeg on top.

Add in your cocktail umbrella and a slice of lime and you're one step closer....
